Hi,

I've created a website for a writer's group with this amazing theme (thanks!) but would like to know how to make the main navigation (by that I mean the links to pages at the top of the website) bigger or bolder (or both).

I think the pages are very small up there and I want to make sure people see them - so how can I make them bigger or more obvious? (I basically want to make the text bigger or more colourful)

This is the site: http://write-club.net/

Thanks in advance!

Wordpress 3.4.1, Atahualpa 3.7.7
It's easy. In the Atahualpa Theme Options/Header Area/Page Menu Bar, look down near the bottom, where you can style the font size and face, link colors, etc.

Thank-you!

That's worked.

Do you know how to add a bit of space (padding?) between the top navigation and the header image? (I can't see where you add this.)

Thanks again!

I'm trying to get the menu text set to bold. In ATO->Header Area ->Page Menu Bar-> Font Size & Face, I've tried:
14px "Arial Bold", "Verdana Bold", sans-serif

14px Arial Bold, Verdana Bold, sans-serif

14px "Arial Bold", Times New Roman Bold, sans-serif

14px "Arial Bold", Times New Roman Bold, sans-serif, font-weight:bold,

14px Tahoma, arial, sans-serif, font-style: bold;

14px "Tahoma", arial, sans-serif, font-style: bold;

and several other settings, but I can't get the text to BOLD. I'm thinking Verdana Bold would look good. Any help for a newbie would be appreciated. (Using IE 7)

BTW, the default setting show no quotes, the instructions say to use them. Probably been pointed out to you before, but just in case...

EDIT UPDATE:
Having success with: Verdana, arial, sans-serif; font-size:1.0em;
